The levels of four of the Great Lakes are higher than a year ago, and all except Lake Ontario should start next year's boating season at or above last year's levels.

Lakes Michigan and Huron are predicted to be slightly above last year's levels, while Superior, St. Clair and Erie are expected to be about the same as last year, according to a six-month outlook issued this month by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Detroit News reports.

The Great Lakes gradually have been recovering to long-term averages after near-historic low levels in the middle part of the decade.
